Fishing shacks have to be off the ice next week

The province has ordered fishermen to get their ice fishing shacks off the ice earlier than usual.

Normally the shacks have to be ashore by March 31st…but the Environment Department has shortened the season this year because of the mild weather to March 13th in the south.  Several shack owners in Rothesay have already taken steps to avoid losing their property and moved them to the shore.
